They are Michael Auping, chief curator at the Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth; Valerie Cassel; Hugh Davies, director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego; Jane Farver, director of the List Visual Arts Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Andrea Miller-Keller, an independent curator from Hartford; and Lawrence R. Rinder, director of the Institute for Exhibitions and Public Programs at the California College of Arts and Crafts in San Francisco and Oakland. The 2000 Biennial is the most international of the shows to date; 21 of the artists are immigrants to the United States.
